of this mess. >> president obama and mitt romney stare each other down one more time. >> i'm not going to wear rose colored glasses when it comes to russia or mr. putin. >> from from red glasses to red ink, did mitt romney gaughan any red states? or did president obama zing his way to a win? >> so the question is not a game of battleship. >> we go to the scorecards on a special "early start. >>> good morning. welcome to "early start," everyone. >> it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >> the debates are done. no more debates. president obama and mitt romney going toe to toe over america's role on the world stage. >> and by most accounts, it was a more forceful president obama who came out on top last night. the majority of analysts and voters agreeing mitt romney was on the defensive for much of this foreign policy face-off. a cnn poll of people who watched this third and final debate shows 48% favored obama with 40% for romney. the president now two for three in the showdowns in the polling. he also won the second debate by seven points after taking a 42-point beating in debate number one. senior congr
schedule to tell you about. the romney side canceling the last of three events in virginia this sunday an evening rally in virginia beach. vice president biden canceled a weekend event there as well. the first lady scrubbed a tuesday event in new hampshire due to possible bad weather. weather could become a factor in the final push for votes and if the effects linger, might even affect turnout on election day. that said, there are so many factors to consider, so much forecasting in the form of polling. there's new cnn/orc numbers tonight on the race in ohio. you all know how important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it i
the election. both mitt romney and president obama are hitting the campaign trail with new urgency. romney has been riding a wave after the first debate bichlt all accounts, president obama got the edge in the second debate. last chance for two men to go nose to nose in a race that's now too close to call. dana bash joins us, also from boca raton, florida, the site of last night's face-off. how was this debate different from the previous two? >> reporter: i think it was a flip of what you just described about the first debate. president obama was incredibly aggressive, snarky at times. mitt romney almost it looked like he was biting his tongue, trying not to be like that. both men understood it was clear that foreign policy is not high on the minds of voters and really wanted to make it about leadership. mitt romney came trying to show leadership of commander in chief. president obama came to make sure that didn't happen. time and time again, comments dripped with sarcasm. >> the biggest gop political threat facing america you said russia, not al qaeda. you said rusha. 1980s are now calling to
prolonged wars. governor romney wants to take us back to those policies, a foreign policy that's wrong and reckless, economic policies that won't create jobs, won't reduce our deficit, but will make sure that folks at the very top don't have to play by the same rules you do. i have a different vision for america. i want to build on our strengths, i put forward a plan to make sure we're bringing manufacturing jobs back to our shores by rewarding companies and small businesses that are investing here not overseas. i want to make sure we got the best education system in the world. and we're retaining our workers for the jobs of tomorrow. i want to control our own energy. by developing oil and natural gas, but also the energy sources of the future. yes, owe want to reduce our deficit by cutting spending we don't need, but also by asking the wealthy to do a little bit more, so we can invest in things like research and technology that are the key to a 21st century economy. as commander in chief, i will maintain the strongest military in the world, keep faith with our troops and go af
around this evening. take a look. president obama and mitt romney with dueling campaign events in the state of ohio tonight. governor romney's event on the right, mr. obama's on the left. we'll go live to our correspondents at both rallies shortly and jump in at any point in either candidate is making some news. >>> new polling as well. late numbers just coming in tonight and new endorsements including colin powell weighing in today. >>> also tonight, a very different look inside the campaign from presidential historian doug brinkley who got an opportunity to watch his tore being made as well as what president obama called mitt romney. it rhymes with, well, show-bidder. it's causing outrage tonight. this, on the other hand, there may be reason for the romney campaign to cheer. the breaking news. the abc news/"washington post" tracking poll now has mitt romney ahead by three points and more crucially, hitting the 50% mark for the first time. in our own cnn poll of polls, governor romney currently enjoys a one-point lead, 48-47. as you no doubt know, the race will boil down to a
debate amidst tight poll s, testy candidates and trouble across the globe. today, as obama and romney prepare to debate the world, who has the strongest hand? we'll ask former ambassador to the united nations bill richardson. and former speaker of the house newt gingrich. >> hello, virginia. >> what a great virginia welcome. >> then battleground virginia. with the state's democratic senator mark warner and former congressman republican tom davis and courtship of the american woman. gender politics with a top republican woman in congress kathy mcmorris rogers. dman bash and dan balz. i'm candy crawley and this is the state of the union. >> al qaeda is on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> up against criticism the president's approach has been too hard on friends and too conciliatory to enemy sfwls the president's policies throughout the middle east began with an apology tour. >> tomorrow's debate the last before the election will focus solely on foreign policy. it's certain to include the specific, including the who knew what when questions surrounding the murders of fo
nonetheless, the des moines register endorsed mitt romney for president. the first time in 40 years the newspaper picked the republican nominee. while the editors praise president obama's early efforts to revitalize the economy through his stimulus plan, it concluded his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. joining me now for the politics of weather and everything else is obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod. good morning, david. let me start here with the storm. when you look at virginia where this is likely to be the swing state most affected, does anything worry you about that state being more or less paralyzed by weather for a couple three, four days? >> well, the first thing i think we should say is we're most concerned about people. this storm could affect 50 million americans. the president has been in close contact with fema and dhs and all the agencies that have responsibility here to make sure we're doing everything we can for people, and that's what he is going to contin

and through today, even this evening. for governor romney's part he surprised a lot of the estimated 59 million people who watched the debate by spending a lot of the night agreeing with president obama. >> with regards to iraq, you and i agreed, i believe, that there should have been a status of forces agreement and i concurred in that and said we should have some number of troops that stayed on. that was something i concurred with. i believe as the president indicated, and said at the time, that i supported his action there. i want to underscore the same point the president made. i couldn't agree more about going forward but i certainly don't want to go back to the policies of the last four years. >> well, there was one of those agreements, in particular, about withdrawing u.s. troops from afghanistan that got our attention. watch. >> well, we're going to be finished by 2014 and when i'm president, we'll make sure we bring our troops out by the end of 2014. >> keeping them honest, when governor romney was entering the presidential race in june of 2011, he was saying just the opposite.
and romney is another potential masked candidate, somebody with youth, gender and popularity, firmly on her side. madam president, honey boo-boo. a proud nation awaits. that's all for us tonight. "ac 3 6 0" starts now. >>> good evening, everyone. 10:00 on the east coast. with just two weeks to go until the presidential race is now laser focused on a handful of battleground states and undecided voters. it's too early to tell whether last night's debate moved the needle for either campaign but we do know both men kept the fact checkers busy all night and through today, even tonight. for governor romney's part he surprised a lot of the estimated 59 million people who watched the debate by spending a lot of the night agreeing with president obama. >> with regards to iraq, you and i agreed, i believe, that there should have been a status of forces agreement and i concurred in that and said we should have some number of troops. that was something i concurred with. >> i believe as the president indicated, and said at the time, that i supported his action there. >> i want to underscore the same poi

debate. both president obama and governor romney will be called on to give their vision for that region. cnn's jones gives us that vision. >> the third and final faceoff between president obama and governor romney will focus entirely on foreign policy. from afghanistan to pakistan, to israel, iran and the changing middle east, the candidates will spar over america's role in the world, the new face of terrorism and how to deal with the rise in china. with polls showing the president's advantage over romney on foreign policy has narrowed since the summer, mr. obama tried to highlight one of his biggest foreign policy accomplishments at a light-hearted charity dinner in new york. >> monday's debate is a little different because monday's topic is foreign policy. spoil spoiler alert: we got bin laden. >> he also poked fun at his opponent. >> some of you remember, after my foreign trip in 2008, i was attacked as a celebrity because i was so popular with our allies overseas. i have to say i'm impressed with how well governor romney has avoided that problem. >> for his part, romney could try ag
evening, everyone. i'm erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, not so fast, mitt. romney recognizes the great threat posed by america's $16 trillion debt, but what is he going to do about it? today, he made a big economic policy speech and was quick to note how devastating america's debt problem is. >> our national debt in liabilities threatened to crush our feature. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment that we need. >> now, during monday's debate, he noted the immediate danger of debt, too. >> admiral mullen said that our debt is the biggest national security threat we face. >> but what would president mitt romney do to slash the debt? well, given everything we know now, his plan doesn't add up. we know three big things about romney's plan. one. he wants to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates.
president obama and governor romney but is anyone actually going to be watching? competing for the eyeballs on tv tonight, if you didn't already know it, monday night football, bears and lions, game seven of the baseball playoffs, giants and cardinals. look, we've seen the debates really do move the needle, but can a foreign policy debate compete against major sporting events? for the sports fans out there, we have some stats for you. how is this? our new cnn poll of polls shows it's a dead heat, 47/47. a let me bring in brianna keilar, live from boca raton, florida. the president admittedly took a bit of a foois in debapass in d one, really feisty in debate number two. which one are we going to see tonight? >> reporter: i think what they would say we're expecting to see is someone who is in command, and they're going to obviously sort of position him and they have throughout debate prep, he's the person who has had four years of foreign policy hands-on experience, ashleigh, as you know, you really can't trade four years of hands-on experience. that's something he has that's an advantage ov
. it includes some revealing remarks about his opponents and his plans for a second term. also, mitt romney's sidetracked by some controversial remarks about rape and abortion by a senate candidate he endorsed. and newly revealed e-mail, they're raising new questions right now in the hours following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just 13 days until the presidential election and the obama and romney campaigns, they are kicking into overdrive as the candidates make their final push to win the white house. cnn correspondents are following their every move. they're reporting from coast to coast and from all the most crucial states, any one of which has the potential to decide who the next president of the united states will be. let's begin this hour's coverage in iowa where president obama kicked off a two-day coast-to-coast swing through eight states. he's calling it a campaign marathon extravaganza. likening it to an all-nighter. no surprise his itinerary consistents almost entirely of battleground states. cnn'
to decide. does president obama get four more years or does mitt romney get a shot at the oval office? they each made the case last night during the final presidential debate and yesterday we really wondered if anybody was going to watch. after all, this big debate, third and final, was competing for eyeballs against two huge sporting events. we do have a best measure this early on. it is a strange one. a unique one. twitter, debate one brought us 10.3 million tweets. debate number 2, the number fell to 7.2. last night it fell further to 6.5 million tweets which is still a lot of people. right after it was over we had a chance to do more normal polling and we asked debate watchers who won and here are the numbers. 48% gave the victory to president obama. 40% said governor romney got the best of it. as dana bash reports, regardless of the outcome, both men had a specific game plan to further their case. >> mitt romney came wanting voters to see him as commander in chief. the commander in chief came determined to make sure that didn't happen. >> i know you haven't been in a position to
on the presidential cam pains. particularly in some key swing states. both vice president joe biden and mitt romney have cancelled campaign rallies in virginia beach that were scheduled for this weekend. the obama campaign says biden's schedule was changed so police and emergency crews could stay focused on helping people with that storm. first lady michelle obama as well cancelled a campaign rally. this was in another critical swing state, in new hampshire. it was scheduled for next week in durham, but that campus is closing for that storm. sandy's political ramifications don't stop there either. take a look at this picture that we put together for you. it shows some of the campaign layers hitting the east coast. as we mentioned, campaign events across the country being delayed or cancelled already. we've told you to expect huge travel delays as well. alexandria just mentioned that. in addition to impacting millions of travelers, though, the campaigns may have to make some last-minute maneuvering themselves. and finally, a major storm hitting the most densely populated section of the country, coul
and a new poll in ohio tonight, could romney lose the buckeye state and still win the presidency? we're going to ask rick santorum. and a cadet in the air force forced to choose between her child or staying in the military. does the policy add up? good evening, tonight, we have breaking news. new e-mail, i've got it in my hand, about the attack on the american consulate in libya and i want to read it to you. it says ds command reports the current shelter location for com, which stands for chief of mission, personnel in benghazi is under attack by mortar fire. there are reports of injuries to com staff. this e-mail was sent just before midnight on september 11th of this year. suzanne kiel has been working the story all day. and she's out front with the latest what you can tell us about the significance of this particular e-mail? >> the e-mail shows us that the nature of the attack and it came some eight hours after the attack happened. keep in mind what u.s. officials knew at the time. they knew for example, that al sharia was a well equipped group with anti-american sentiment. they h
or so, president obama has arrived in southern florida. we should tell you that mitt romney is already there. the scene of tonight's debate is boca raton. and the subject is foreign policy. and the format will be this, barack obama and mitt romney, seated, they're going to be seated around a table with bob schieffer of cbs news. that's a hall you're looking at, obviously, it is a rehearsal. as you can see, they will be pretty cozy sitting around that table there. and now just in time for tonight's big debate, a very big story concerning foreign policy. possible, possible talks between the united states and iran after the election. one on one talks about iran's nuclear program and that would be a major shift in washington's policy toward tehran. keep in mind, though, the obama administration and iran both denight the talks have been agreed to. jim acosta, to you, he's at the scene for us of tonight's big debate, our coverage by the way begins tonight at 7:00 eastern. curious timing here, the story about potential talks between the u.s. and iran. i'm guessing that could take center stage
, president obama uses some surprisingly coarse language to describe mitt romney. also, romney takes a paying job out of the president's double play book. and a possible real life horror story for the northeastern united states. the pieces are now falling in place for a monster weather event dubbed frankenstorm. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just a dozen days left in the race for the white house. the candidates, their campaigns are now pulling out all the stops. and so are we. our cnn correspondents are reporting from all of the most critical states in this very, very tight race as president obama and governor romney throw virtually everything in their campaign arsenals at the battleground states. let's start with the obama campaign right now. the president drew a huge crowd in richmond, virginia, today. his most recent stop on a whirlwind two-day eight-state swing that culminates next hour. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin has the latest. >> reporter: wolf, president obama is moving through his schedule at a healthy clip. he's even running early al
. kind of like they've accused mitt romney of doing. when we made that assertion, we looked hard through the entire campaign website like any voter would do to find the information. we couldn't find it. now, the campaign took issue with our comment, saying our equating their lack of detail on loopholes to mitt romney's was a false equivalency, so they sent us details this afternoon. more accurately, they sent us the president's 2013 budget tables. and they say -- i guess if this one year is a reflection of everything the president would do for the next four years, then it's fair. they gave us the loopholes. the tables of their 2013 budget submitted in february are right here, starting on page 15 of 30, after devoting 14 pages to taking aim at the gop plan. but does it add up to the president's plan of cutting $4 trillion from the debt? well, no. the nonpartisan, cbo, analyzed this budget and concluded, and i'll quote them, over the 2013 to 2022 period, the cumulative deficit that would result from enacting the president's budget, $6.4 trillion, or more than 3% of gdp, would be $3.5 trill
and mitt romney are hunkered down for their final face-off. final preparations are also being made at tomorrow's debate site. that's lynn university in boca raton, florida. you see it will. the verbal dual if will focus this time on foreign policy. wednesday mr. obama plans to pull an all-nighter both in key battleground states to launch a whirlwind tour of six states starting in iowa and he will cast his vote early in chicago on thursday. romney, meanwhile, held his final formal fundraising event last night. he has raised more than $361 million in his latest bid for the white house. >>> president obama has secured the endorsement of ohio's largest newspaper. the cleveland plane dealer says that obama has fumbled the economic recovery but also says he has led the nation back from the brink of depression. ohio in particular has benefit from his bold decision to revive the auto industry. it was gutsy, and it worked. ohioans are making cars in toledo and lordstown. they're back on the job. that's leadership that deserves a chance to finish the job. >>> mitt romney is picking up an end
